Lama Zopa Rinpoche accepts to consecrate the stupas – May 8!

Lama Yeshe and Rinpoche

Rejoice with us at this most fabulous news! It’s now confirmed. Lama Zopa Rinpoche, in His immeasurable kindness, has accepted our invitation to consecrate the stupas on May 8. Rinpoche asked Geshe Dakpa, astrologer and resident teacher at Tse Chen Ling in San Francisco, to check the date. It came out most auspicious.

That’s in 7 weeks. You may think it’s crazy given we just filled the base/thrones. Yes it is crazy. Completely crazy. Wild crazy. And yet Tom Waggoner and his construction crew

committed to that schedule out of sheer passion and devotion for this holy object and what it represents. On the right is a picture of Tom and Yeshe in front of the site 5 days ago and below is a sketch of what it’s envisioned to look like on May 8…..

The vision for May 8!

All of you, join us for this most special day of celebration and rejoicing! This consecration will be the most significant event to happen at Vajrapani Institute of the past 20 years since His Holiness blessed the land with His presence. It will also happen in the middle of 4 days of teachings and Great Chenrezig Initation offered by Rinpoche.

Details will be posted on this blog and on vajrapani’s website. Also good idea to sign up on Vajrapani’s e-mail list for last minute updates!
